These felt wheels are made of 100% wool. Felt is a high quality medium, applied together with a suitable compound or paste used in the polishing of metals, precious metals, semi precious stones and glass. In addition, felt gives great results when putting a final polish onto the cutting edge of a blade or chisel. Along with a fine compound, the felt hones and polishes the edge to razor sharpness. The medium felt wheel is firm with a little bit of give, making a better choice for tools with gentle curves or carving tools with larger sweeps.
These felt wheels have a 12.7mm (1/2") plain bore, designed for direct mounting onto the Axminster Craft AC150BB 150mm buffing machine. They can, of course, fit onto any similarly designed 12.7mm (1/2") or 13mm shaft. They are not suitable for use with a pigtail type mounting. The thickness of these wheels is 20mm.
We recommend that the user wears eye protection.
Please note: always present the blade or chisel to the wheel so the edge of the tool trails, i.e. the direction of rotation is away from the tool.
